Is anybody else taking Levothyroxine and finding their hypothyroidism symptoms aren’t relieved at all with it? I am so worried this condition is going to stand in my way

    I started taking it when I was pregnant. Unfortunately we miscarried our twins at 16 weeks, but I am still taking it and I have actually lost 14lbs since I found out I was pregnant in July. That's more than I have been able to lose in years. I would talk to your doctor to make sure you are on the right dosage. It may need increased.

    I am taking them, I have been taking a 50 mg dose daily for the last 5 or 6 years, and I've lost 43 kg this year (94 lbs), so even though I feel like the pills aren't really helping with other symptoms (such as fatigue, for example), it hasn't stood in my way to lose weight. :) but as you already know, if you see that you're unable to lose weight after some time dieting, it would be best to speak to your doctor and see what they tell you regarding the pills.
    Best of luck on your journey!
